Remember the tour that seemed to go on for ever seeing FM supporting Magnum on their Storyteller tour. Great combo with Magnum in their prime. Seem to remember seeing the guys at Buckley Tivoli twice in those days. Still have the Indiscreet Cassette and the That Girl shaped picture disk :)

Twenty five years??? Good God, that has flown by!

Well, I know that many of us were there at the beginning and we re still supporting FM now. I still have the Jan/Feb Tour Program (listed above) my black FM Mug, and a few signed vinyl goodies, including the American Girls shaped picture disc, which was a gift from then Assistant, Carmel, and a collection of badly faded t-shirts that no longer fit!

I remember going to see FM at Guildford Civic Halls when they were supporting Magnum, and Pete was waaaaaaay up in the heavens, barely visible behind his kit! They sound checked with American Girls, and Merv was wearing his pink suit while Chris played his Gibson Flying V. And after playing their set, I spoke to the guys (mostly Pete and Didge) and it was like having a beer with old friends. And despite persisting with my go on, you can tell me, I promise I won t tell a soul routine, Didge wouldn t budge and swore blind his real name actually was Didge Digital.

What a great night that was.

Here s a thought, since we re all in Indiscreet mode, how about re-printing the original FM t-shirt? The white one with the pink FM logo on the front and the Fender Strat style headstock on the reverse? I lost my original shirt some time ago and haven t seen one on Ebay to replace it with.

Thanks for the music, boys. Hope to see you on tour soon......

I'm loving reading all your thoughts and memories on this page. It's very humbling, but so nice to read the effect a 12" circular piece of vinyl has had on your lives. Agreeing to do Firefest 07, after much pressure from that fine man Kieran Dargan (give the man a knighthood), proved to be pretty much the best decision ever. The night is etched on my memory and will remain so forever. I never thought I'd be back up on stage playing those songs, let alone making new albums, I'm truly blessed. All this is due to the enthusiasm, love and devotion shown to us by you the fans. You really are the reason we do this, and we are loving doing it. I know things in FM land always seems to take an age, but you deserve the best and that's what we strive to deliver. We have some great stuff planned for "25 Live" and its going to grow and grow, all developments will be on the site or sign up for our newsletters (details how to are on the home page). Well I'll leave you in peace, my coffee has gone cold, but I just had to write a few lines to thank you, our fans old and new for making being the drummer in FM the best job in the world. Keep those memories flooding in.

Love ya all! xxx PJ

FM means so much more than just music to me. It defines a time in my life and instantly takes me back whenever I hear them. I smashed up my brother's Rover SD1 listening to Indiscreet. FM will always have pride of place at the top of my collection.

My best friend attended the Reading rock festival in 1986 and he came back saying he had seen the best band ever. I took this with the usual pinch of salt. A couple of weeks later he'd got the LP and brought it round to my house.
We were both 17, i lived at home with my mum and my record player was a large gramaphone the size of a coffin and probably from the 60's in my bedroom. On to it I placed the record from this so called 'best band'
That record was 'Indiscreet', by the end of the first play of 'That Girl' i was hooked. My life changed from that moment on. We played the record over and over and the next day i rushed out to buy my own copy.
I first saw FM in Feb 87 at the Astoria, neither of us could talk the next day as we'd sung ourselves hoarse. At that gig i purchased my first and best FM t-shirt - the pink logo Indiscreet white one. I still have it although now it's as thin as cling film as it's been worn and washed so many times - a quick request, guys can we please please have an updated version of that t-shirt to celebrate 25 years? I know it's iconic amongst FM fans.
Anyway having seen the band many many times over the years i'm delighted as we all are to be celebrating 25 years, it's an album that changed many lives.
There's also a new generation of FM fans. My 21 year old son loves the band. Mainly due to his constant exposure to the music as a baby i think. In fact his first sentence - much to his mothers displeasure - was "Bad luck finding a lover" said randomly in the back of the car one day. Poor sod never stood a chance :)
Anyway congratulations guys, long live FM.

I can remember when FM played the Riverside in Newcastle, i was stood at the front... acting like a pure young teen.... screeming my head off.... had no voice at the end of the concert from singing.... was totally awesome.... then went to walkers night club afterwards and the band turned up there.... was amazed.... i was dancing by myself on the dancefloor when Peter Jupp came over and asked if he could dance with.... i was sooooo shocked.... but loved every minute of it.... well till his bouncer came over and said his girlie was giving him grief for dancing with me... ha ha.... my claim to fame... lol..... roll on the next 25 boys.... please tours again, very soon xx

Where did the last 25 years go ???

I remember the wait for the LP (remember LPs !!) as I think 2 singles had already been released, and many live shows had already been attended by then. When it finally came out, although we knew most of the songs from the live shows, it was still great to hear a whole LP of FM – and such a great one at that.

Summer of 1986, I also remember some shows at Central Park in Burton-on-Trent, and watching a World Cup match with the Band around sound check time, in the bar (obviously), before the show.

Such is the great collection of songs that many are still in the set today, and even more so now the whole band is happy to play these songs.

A themed tour with the Indiscreet album in full would be fantastic, can we only dream ??

Congratulations on the last 25 years Steve, Pete and Merv – but remembering also Chris and Didge who also made the Indiscreet magic happen – let’s hope there are still several more to come – cannot wait for the Tour.

Cheers, James

I cycled from Southampton to lands end and back to south wales (for Leukaemia Research) with the tape in my walkman, it still plays. I was lucky enough to see the band in the 1990's and Newport Centre was fantastic, easily was the best gig I've seen there

I still remember when a friend came back from the U.K. with the "Frozen Heart" single. The impact that song had on me was huge and it turned me into the FM fan I am today. Personally, I rank "Indiscreet" as one of the most important AOR albums ever and a bonafide classic within the genre. Congratulations to Steve, Pete and Merv for such a brilliant set of songs and for the great album "Indiscreet" proved to be. It stood the test of time and it comes to show the high quality of that album.

All the best guys, from the AORWatchTower.
Rock on...
